Vichy Dermablend Ultra-Corrective Foundation Cream-Stick

Picked this up along with the liquid version. I thought this might work well as a concealer. But it actually works really well as an all over foundation, and for touch-ups throughout the day.

Claims:
- total coverage for up to 12hrs ("up to" being the key words here... it lasts but no that long... not on my face)
- no mask effect
- non-comedogenic
- fragrance-free
- enriched with allantion which is a calming agent

You can apply this stick straight to your face for all over coverage, pick some up with your fingers for localized areas, or use a  q-tip or a brush for spot application. Just like it's liquid counterpart I truly like this foundation. Very easy to work with. However the shade range is extremely limited... only 4.

A tip for applying this foundation (that is included with the product) is to moisturize your skin first and before your moisturizer has time to absorb and penetrate your skin apply this foundation. This ensures even coverage and easy blending.

I've applied this foundation with and without a primer. I prefer it without a primer... It retails for $29.95 CAD at Shoppers Drug Mart.
